Lyrics

Thrills and spills on the railway
It's a life of happiness
But sometimes impatience
Can lead to carelessness
Some think they are smart cats
And some just know it all
But sooner or later we all find out that
Chorus:
Accidents happen now and again
Just when you least expect
Just when you think that life is ok
Fate comes to collect
Accidents happen now and again
When people or trains get smart
If you don't concentrate
On the thing that you're doing
Accidents will happen — just like that
Your best-laid plans can turn upside-down
If you get too confident
Sometimes you will slip and slide
If that's Lady Luck's intent
One minute you're riding high
The next you're on the ground
But please remember — whatever the weather
You must take care 'cause
Accidents happen now and again
Sometimes just by chance
You gotta pick yourself up and dust yourself down
Put it down to experience
Accidents happen now and again
Just don't take it all to heart
'Cause if you don't concentrate on
The thing that you're doing
Accidents will happen — just like that
The warning signs are there for us
To see most of the time
But sometimes we take chances and ingore
The danger signs
Fate can surprise you — with no reason or rhyme
Make sure you learn your lesson
You'll know better next time
(Chorus)
Accidents happen now and again
Sometimes just by chance
You gotta pick yourself up and dust yourself down
Put it down to experience
Accidents happen now and again
Just don't take it all to heart
If you don't concentrate on
The thing that you're doing
And whatever you're doing is
Not what you're thinking
Accidents - incidents
Accidents - incidents — accidents happen just like that!
